John Key's three greatest social media photographs

by Toby Manhire / 30 November, 2012
The Taj Mahal, the classroom and a spot of planking - the NZ prime minister's career so far in three photographs.
An updated version of this post, John Key's six greatest social media photographs, can be viewed here.

This week's collection of 15 John Key tweeted photographs only covered the last three months. Which means it missed out some of the finest work from his pictorial back catalogue.

So, following popular demand, we present the prime minister's three greatest social media photographs.

With thanks to @SimonRagoonanan and @SimonDangerDay for the prompting.

1. Bronagh Key and her husband John travelled to India last year, and they couldn't resist a picture against the backdrop of the famous Taj Mahal. I like to imagine that they've inked little faces on the end of their fingers with a hotel ballpoint pen and now they're kissing. From Twitter, June 2011.




2. Max Key, son of John Key, like every teenager liked a bit of planking back in the day. Here he is, back in the day, doing a bit of planking, with his dad watching on. Max posted it at Facebook in May 2011.




3. And here's the prime minister inspiring leaders of the future, as posted on his Facebook page (that's right, one of his staff took a decision to post it on his Facebook page). From March 2012.
